Now ‘Ere Dis!: Super Cat Meets Shaggy + Maxi Priest on “Night Flight”

It’s been 10 long years since we last heard new vocals from Super Cat. For some of you, that number may be closer to 15 years, since ‘Cat’s early 2000s output (the little-heard “Reggae Matic,” and a handful of mixtape tracks with the Neptunes) flew below many folks’ radar. But now hell has frozen over, and we have actual audio of a new track with Super Cat — alongside fellow reggae geniuses Shaggy and Maxi Priest, no less. The track, “Night Flight,” comes via Shaggy, who we hear had hoped to feature the tune on his last album, Out of Many, One Music. (It was also Shaggy who was responsible for luring ‘Cat out of retirement for his appearance at last year’s On Da Reggae Tip concert).

LargeUp Premiere: Bunji Garlin + A$AP Ferg “Truck On D Road” Remix Lyric Video

When one of soca’s biggest names, Bunji Garlin teamed up with game-changing newcomers Jus Now, the musical landscape of the 2014 Carnival season tipped off its axis a bit, resulting in the infectious and rhythmic manifestation of drum and bass that is “Truck On D Road.”

The ViKing’s lyrics and the production team’s innovative perspective resonated so well that the single not only elicited parodies (specifically one involving a “Cow on D Road”) but one of hip-hop’s biggest rising stars decided to add his flavor to it as well. A$AP Ferg, the Harlem rapper of Trini heritage who’d previously dipped his soca waters with his “Carnival Tabanca” remake “Petit Valley,” turned up on a Truck On the Road remix placing his dutty-minded vocals over a modified, hip-hop-meets-EDM version of the original beat.
